I totally feel for you I know the acne thing is the worst. I have read some of the responses and just from my own experience I think the prime evening rose oil supplements and a B-complex is the way to go. I went on the pill for the same reason to clear up my acne, which means you possibly have hormonal acne like I do and I do know that the prime evening rose is suppose to help balance out your hormones, which is the problem you have now that you went off the pill. Please keep us posted and I really hope everything works for you. I know I also break out under stress and I am sure the wedding and the fact that your skin has broken out has caused more stress in your life so if anything try to make the reduction of stress in your life a priority everyday and I honestly believe this will help, at least to a certain extent. Good-luck...
: Hi...I am so upset that I don't know what to do!!!! I am 31 years old and just went off the pill at the beginning of this year (stupid move) and now I am breaking out like crazy..every day I get at least one new pimple!! Arghhhh!!! I went on the pill to clear up my skin..I started breaking out when I was 23 and my derm told me to try the pill and it was a miracle, my skin was almost perfect while on the pill. I went off because I want to get pregnant soon so I want to make sure that the pill is completely out of my system.
: I dont believe in taking any chemicals/antibiotics so I am trying the natural approach to cure my acne. I went to a homeopathic doctor who said that I have a yeast and digestive problem and that is why I am breaking out. Ok...I admit that I was a sugar fiend and consumed way too much sugar and foods with sugar in them along with a ton of bread and pasta...the things that yeast just loves!!! I have changed my diet completely and take a bunch of different herbs/supplements (MSM, primrose oil, liver cleanser, digestive enzymes, vit e, acidophilis, etc.) for almost two months now and my skin seems to be getting worse and I am starving all the time!!!! I feel like I cant eat anything because I keep doing research and every article tells me to cut something else out of my diet!!! I am afraid to eat anything and have lost weight which I did not need!!!
: I know I have been rambling and the point of this whole post is that I am getting married on November 19th (about 2 1/2 weeks away) and I dont want to with this face...I want to cancel the whole thing at this point but we will lose so much money in deposits. Nobody understands...they just say, "Cover it with makeup" and true I can do that but I wont feel beautiful or even cute and aren't you supossed to feel that way on your wedding day???? And my skin is so sensitive that every pimple has created such a red mark that I have them all over my face and it's getting harder and harder to cover them all without looking like I have a ton of makeup on. I used to not have to wear any makeup!!!
: My wedding day is not going to be what it should and my memories are going to be of pimples!!!
: Thanks for listening..I needed to vent..nobody else understands and thinks that I am being petty
